With Miedema exit, can we expect positive news on Stina Blackstenius contract with Arsenal Women?

Gooners are going to keep asking about Stina Blackstenius’ future at Arsenal Women until she signs a contract extension and the club officially announce it. Over the last two seasons, the Swedish striker has scored a lot of goals for Arsenal Women.

Stina has been playing a bit less this season since Alessia Russo joined last summer, but she’s still made a big impact on the Arsenal attack. In fact, with 17 goals, she’s their top scorer this season. Just recently, we mentioned that Arsenal is interested in signing Stina to a new contract, while Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, and Barcelona are all interested as well.

Interestingly, Jonas Eidevall has dropped a hint that a new deal for the Swedish striker could be on the horizon.

“When we have concrete things to announce, we will do that. I am aware I have been saying that line a lot – hopefully next time we communicate concrete things, we have a player extending to report.”

It would be awesome if Blackstenius stayed at Arsenal longer. Hopefully, in the upcoming season, she will have more opportunities to showcase her skills.

Football fans who are into the Women’s Super League (WSL) often talk about Sam Kerr and Khadija (Bunny) Shaw as top-notch strikers, but Blackstenius has the potential to be just as great if she’s given more recognition and opportunities. It’s unfair to judge her solely based on the chances she misses, considering that Kerr and Bunny Shaw also have their fair share of missed opportunities.

  1. She may be having second thoughts about extending her contract after the shabby treatment of Vivienne by Arsenal. It wasnt the actions of a ‘good’ big club, but very small minded.

  2. If Stina has signed a new deal I would be extremely happy she Stina in my opinion has had a fantastic season and she has improved by 100% and I am so happy if true roll on next season with our Arsenal Ladies playing all their games at the Emirates will also move the Women’s game forward

  3. I’m a great fan of Alessia Russo but she often gives me ‘sleepless nights’ analysing why, in some games, she fails to score at all, given her opportunities and how on earth she ‘fluffed’ her hat trick goal last Saturday. The opportunity was identical to her first goal in the 4-1 win against Chelsea earlier in the season and her reaction to missing it told me she was annoyed with herself at putting the ball wide. As I’ve already said, we need Russo, Mead AND Blackstenius to lead the line if we’re going to win the league.
    (Which we would have done with ease if the games against West Ham, Liverpool and Tottenham hadn’t been squandered)
